Food | Blueberry, Lemon and Greek Yogurt loaf cake

Sharing an easy but yummy recipe with you today by the lovely Donna Hay, it's her Blueberry and yogurt loaf. If you haven't heard of Donna before, she is Australian and big news on Pinterest.

If you visit her website you will be blown away by the food photography and imagery she really does challenge me to think of new ways to display my recipes in the future on my blog and my kitchen instagram.

What you will need
115g Self Raising Flour
150g Margarine (this is a difference to Donna's recipe)
220g Caster sugar
140g Greek Yoghurt
2 eggs
125g blueberries plus more for decoration if you wish
Zest of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon of Vanilla essence 
Icing sugar for dusting

1) I used a standing mixer so I first added margarine, caster sugar, eggs and greek yoghurt and mixed thoroughly 

2) Then I added flour, lemon zest and vanilla essence and mix further

3) Wash and dry your blueberries and once dry coat them in a small amount of flour as this will stop them from sinking while cooking

4) To try and get your blueberries evenly throughout your cake, spoon some of the mixture into the lined loaf tin then put a layer of blueberries then spoon more mixture and repeat until complete finishing with cake mixture on the top

5) This is quite a wet mixture with the yoghurt so it took nearly 1 hour to cook - 

I cooked it for 30 mins at 200c then I checked it again 10 minutes later, I then ended up turning the oven down and cooking for a further 10 mins until I was happy it was fully cooked through

6) After cooking I left it in the tin for 1 hour before moving it onto a cooling wire

7) Once fully cooled transfer to a decorative plate or board for display and serving using the icing sugar and additional blueberries.

Hope you enjoy making this and eating it as much as I did with my family in the garden last week.

As much as I have tried all my top tips from friends and google, my blueberries are still out of control and moved to one side, let me know if you do anything different to me and have more success.
